Podcast: 'Dugout Blues' episode 25 - Dodgers, Jim Shonerd interview, Castellanos, Uribe, Baez, prospects

On this episode of "Dugout Blues," Jared Massey (L.A. Dugout) and I interview Baseball America's Jim Shonerd. Shonerd authored the Dodgers' Top 30 prospect list for the BA Prospect Handbook and gave us some good insight into the process.

Hyun-Jin Ryu and Zack Greinke's debuts are discussed briefly before we look at the case for Alex Castellanos making the 25-man roster. This led to a tangent about how terrible Juan Uribe is at baseball. It pleased me.

Bullpen Banter released its Dodgers' Top 15 prospect list, which we discuss. No really big surprises, but Alex Santana continues to get some love in prospect lists despite not having hit much in his first two seasons.

We also examine Pedro Baez and his move to the bullpen. He's already drawing praise from one Hall-of-Famer in Sandy Koufax. I'll be penning a post about him in the not to distant near future.

Per usual, we close with listener questions. Who are some prospects to watch during Spring Training? What would it take for the Dodgers to land Emilio Bonafacio in a trade with the Blue Jays? Could the Yankees be interested in Andre Ethier after Curtis Granderson suffered a broken forearm?
